From Chasseral (1'607 m a.s.l., see Map):

There were quite a lot of these Piedmont ringlets (Lepidoptera; Satyridae; Erebia meolans de Prunner 1798; Gelbbindiger Mohrenfalter) flying on top of the Chasseral, the highest point of the Jura mountains.

ID: Erebia species are a mine field for the correct ID. In this case I was helped by the book of T. Tolman & R. Lewington, but also by the "Centre suisse pour la cartographie de la faune" in Neuchâtel (www.cscf.ch). I add a picture of the underside in the workshop area. If somebody does not agree with the ID, please tell me. The species may be a "first" on TN.

Erebia meolans again, same place, same time but not the same individual. The undeside is important for ID.
